OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+ models
Presently, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, offered at 270 pounds and 312 pounds, respectively. These prices include VAT and exclude delivery charges (with the exception of the United Kingdom - free-of-cost delivery is available on all UK orders). The lucky UK clients should allow 1 to 2 days for delivery, which is very quick actually. Let’s examine how the two OpenWheelers perform.
Racing game wheels
The basic Xbox driving simulator model designed by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Regardless of its name, you should not consider it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler is compatible with almost all video game driving wheels available on the market, which do not need a separate gear shift frame. That’s approximately 99 percent of all home video game racing wheel models available on the market. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit ideally into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Looks like almost all major driving wheel models are compatible with this compact racing game seat simulator.
OpenWheeler+ has a special plate for an external gear shift module. Actually, that’s the sole difference between the two models. Suitable examples of car driving game wheel models with an external gear shift module are the famous Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.
The list of OpenWheeler’s strengths is not that short, as you will notice. The majority of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other famous and not-so-famous car racing seat simulators. Other features like the sliding rails and the easy movability (thanks to its front-side wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler exclusively.
An optimum driving posture. The driver’s chair is in fact a real bucket seat. You will feel like driving an actual car. You will simply love it.
Unbelievable comfort. Thanks to the real racing seat in use and the shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually cope with the so-called g-forces. Though everything holds still (the TV, the home video game console and the entire cockpit simulator), most drivers twist their bodies following the track ahead, usually when driving under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we are talking about kick in. The shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler gaming seat is just astounding.
A bending seat back. The driver can regulate the seat back position. The racing chair folds flat, so, after the car driving game has come to an end, it will occupy less room.
Sliding rails. They will help you reach the optimum racing posture. An extremely useful feature, especially when driving simulation video game players with different body shapes play one after another. Simply glide the seat backwards and forwards until the optimal driving position has been found. With other car driving simulator seats, you will have to use knobs to apply the necessary changes. With OpenWheeler, you will spare time and effort.
A telescopic home racing game wheel platform. For regulating the height of the car driving game wheel. Great for both big and small racing video game players.
A flexible pedal board. Move the pedals until you find the perfect racing position.
Easy maneuvering (thanks to the small front-side wheels). That’s a great idea. Two plan front-side wheels transform the 20-kilogram OpenWheeler PC gaming chair into a 4-5-kg stroller. A 7-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
